10 Songs, 46 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The People’s Key is simultaneously more scaled-down and more expansive than its predecessor, Cassadaga, with a smaller cast of characters and a more pointed exploration of indie rock's electric side. “Jejune Stars” and “Triple Spiral” feature sophisticated drumming, adventurous use of guitars from bandleader Conor Oberst, and alluring moments of sweeping synths care of keyboard master Nate Walcott. Tracks like “Ladder Song” and “Approximate Sunlight” are stripped-down, pensive reminders of the passion that made Oberst great to begin with.

PITCHFORK. Shame on you.

deeply dissapointed with the guys over at pitchfork who didnt like this. I Really Like this and I think 99% of Bright Eyes fans will love this. My #1 pick of the year. Excited to hear the new Radiohead album though. Really hope its not the last

im crying right now. the emotional impact of a band that has finally come together has reached my soul. i can look at the world now and finally feel no judgement and no withstanding fear. that is what this album has done to me.
